    Birthday Traditions

    On birthdays we did several things for the birthday child. Our para made up a birthday hat (in our school colors - blue and green) for each of my students. It had their first name and their birth date in glitter. I gave out a birthday certificate; the student would read it out loud and we would all sing to the birthday child. I also typed up different birthday poems on fancy paper - rolled the poem and wrapped it with different wrapping ribbon and placed all the poems in a fancy birthday bag that hung by our calendar all year. Each birthday child would get to pull out a poem and then read it to the class. Of course they loved this and then took it home to share with their family. They got to put the class birthday star and birthday bear on their desk for the day and finally they were the line leader all day. Some parents brought in goodies. P.S. During the last month of school any students having birthdays during the summer were given a day to have all these happy traditions happen to them! "SMILE"
